Weekly Update - 1/18

Thank you Patrick for the message, taken from Psalm 28.  We have to realize that we can't make it without the Lord.  We have to turn it ALL over to HIM.  When we pray to God, we must BELIEVE that God will answer.  

The singing was especially beautiful today!  Thank you Stephen Gerrald for reminding us about the story behind the song "It Is Well With My Soul".  I reread it this afternoon and listened to it on STILL gives me chill bumps to think of the immense sadness that he was experiencing.  But...he had the wisdom to know he would see his children again!

RESPONSE:  Michael McCarter asked for prayers that he be a better husband and father and that he rely more on the Lord.
